In the old days we had a good culture going.
Ladies and mistresses shared what they commissioned their craftsmen to make, right under their roofs. I mean this in the exact sense (this site is most of the times child-safe), these jewelry were made in their homes, beside where a spittoon and Thomas cup probably sat earnestly. They admired one another’s aesthetics, similarities and differences, coveted and aped, heralding a cross cultural art that is lost now. Peranakan jewelry is under studied and under awed. We may just revive it, a little at a time. Read up on these stubborn snobs below.

Nothing more exciting to add except you must already know we would offer for sale the said spittoon and Thomas cup here if we could get our hands on it.
